This was our third time at Flemings. We had thought it was rather pricey the first two times, but the impeccable service and interesting tastes and presentation had retained our business. However, last night will be the last time we visit Flemings. It appears they have changed chefs and, possibly, management.
Our food last night turned out to be not nearly as good as the food we could get at the Outback. It was greasy. It was lackluster. The filet mignon was cooked right, but was quite dry and without flavor. The Cesar salad was pathetic - drowned in heavy dressing with inedible, grease-soaked, tough croutons.
The asparagus was almost inedible - with dry tips and slick with grease!! Actually the greasiness of the food was very HIspanic in presentation.
The clincher was the server who seemed to have been better suited to working at Dennys. Gone was the special treatment, the caring and impecable butler-type presentation we had experienced on our two prior visits that seemed to help justify the price. No, our server last night was something you'd expect at a diner. When she cleared the table of food particles on two separate occasions (with her fingers no less!) she left conspicious bits of food on the white tablecloth which we ended up having to clear ourselves.
In short, Flemings has significantly dropped in quality and presentation, making it a poor value - a one-star restaurant with 5-star prices. We will not return.
